A Spiritual Word May Have Been Spoken Through the Duggars to the World.

By Sabrina Samone, TMP

As you sit at your laptop, or phone reading this, do me a favor. Turn off your television, ipod and listen. Can you hear it? Seriously...turn off all noises, tell your roommate to hush up. Listen...do you hear it? Can you hear the silence of the right wing conservative christian fundamentalist? Where is the noise now? Why are they silent?
The Duggars with the nerve to bash and judge Caitlyn Jenner

The first celebrity in the recent Ashley Madison hacking dump was Josh Duggar, the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, whose enormous, home schooled, right-wing Christian clan was the subject of the TLC show.

Last week, just a few weeks after TLC formalized the cancellation of "19 kids and counting", Gawker, posted evidence that Josh Duggar was a paying member of Ashley Madison, the social-networking site made to facilitate illicit extramarital affairs. He'd spent almost a thousand dollars on two different accounts between Feb, 2013 and May 2015, including an "affair guarantee" fee of two hundred and fifty dollars. Josh Duggar issued yet another famous Duggar regret statement where he writes, " I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife."

Six months ago, the Duggars, TLC's "19 Kids and Counting", were the role models for fanatics. Last August, Michelle Duggar, matriarch of the Duggar clan, sent out a robocall to residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas urging them to speak out against a proposed anti-discrimination law. The law, dubbed Ordinance 119, would devote a city employee to fielding complaints from resident who have been denied equal service in housing, employment and other civic matters in the city. It would also allow trans men and women to use public restrooms.

In the recording, she misrepresented the law saying, "The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men, yes I said men, to use women's and girls, restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas designated for females only. I don't believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls. I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space."
Their statements all while knowing their son incestuously molested his sisters for years.

Ultimately, the ordinance did not pass.

These spokesmen of hate, blasphemed God's name by using religion to justify their ignorance, judgement and hate. They had supporters through out the evangelical circles like pastor of conspiracy theories Michael Hoggard  , who furthers hate toward transgender people by going as far as warning his listeners that transgender people are actually out to commit blood sacrifices of cis-gender people. Along with blatant transphobia in hip hop, we wonder why transgender people are being murdered weekly. These people are nothing more than conspirators to murder. But who are the Duggars. They tried to stand in judgement of the world and paint a picture of a happy, sane family but who were they really?

Now we know. Back in May, the Duggars found themselves in the midst of molestation allegations involving, Josh Duggar, who had the audacity to say after not going to jail, "I am so very thankful for God's grace, mercy and redemption." He had the nerve to speak of mercy and redemption all while condemning transgender people while molesting his sisters. The family even sent out a statement.

“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.”

Josh Duggar's Ok Cupid Profile, yes he's still married and this is new.

Despite all the evidence to prove the depravity of the Duggars, they still have a few hard core supporters that would who still defend a confessed molester and adulterer, yet with the same breath say we as transgender people are an abomination.

These people are no different than the murderer on the streets that have brutally killed our sisters and brothers. Their words ignite hate and violence against transgender people. These people need to be held responsible for their murder by association and their promotion of murder. Not one voice from the right wing christian community stands to condemn Josh Duggar for adultery, molestation and incest, yet Leelah Alcorn had to loose her innocent life and nearing 20 "known" sisters lost their life from hate by people who learned hate from people like this.

It's time right wing Christian fundamentalist follow their teachings and listen to what God is actually trying to tell them. All they have to do is shut their mouths from preaching hate, violence, and listen to what is being spoken to them and to the world through Josh Duggar...stop casting the first stone, stop placing yourselves on a throne and condemning the lives of innocent transgender people, just stop the damn hypocrisy already.

North Carolina Trans woman was found in a Crude Unmarked Grave

Edited by Sabrina Samone, TMP

The body of Elisha Walker, a 20-year-old transgender woman who had been missing for almost a year, was found in a “crude grave” in Johnston County, North Carolina. According to advocates and local media, the discovery was made more than 100 miles from Walker’s home in Salisbury, North Carolina
A Latin Kings gang member, Angel Dejesus Arias, 23, was arrested and charged with killing Walker and stealing her car, reports said on Thursday. He was being held without bond.
Amid reports from Detroit, Texas and Phoenix of the deaths of three more black, transgender women, some observers have placed the number of transgender women killed this year at 16.
In a statement, transgender Human Rights Campaign staff member Laya Monarez said: “Even as we are seeing an increase in transgender visibility through a range of inspiring national media stories, including Caitlyn Jenner’s, the levels of violence and harassment transgender people face – particularly transgender women and transgender women of color – constitute anational crisis.”
This week, Texas police announced an investigation into the death of 22-year-old Shade Schuler, whose body was found badly decomposed in a field in Dallas. It took almost three weeks to identify her remains.
Activists in Michigan were also asking for help from Detroit law enforcement, after 20-year-old Amber Monroe was shot and killed in a city park. She was the fifth transgender woman to be killed in Palmer Park since 2014.
In Phoenix on Tuesday night a 35-year-old transgender woman, Kandis Capri, was shot dead.
Walker was reported missing in November 2014, after her family had not heard from her since 24 October, the Salisbury Post reported. Police gave local media information about Walker’s disappearance in an effort to generate leads, but few were forthcoming until Walker’s burnt-out 2000 Pontiac Sunfire was discovered in an open field in Sampson County, police said in a release.
Arias had lived in a house in Salisbury that Walker was known to frequent, before moving to Johnston County, more than 100 miles away, where he was arrested on unrelated drug charges. Rowan County police obtained a search warrant for a Johnston County house, they said. They discovered Walker’s body in a “small depression” behind it.
Arias will not face hate crimes charges over Walker’s death. North Carolina does not have a hate crimes statute.
Like other police departments around the country, the Rowan County sheriff’s office has repeatedly referred to Walker with the incorrect pronoun “him”, despite it being widely acknowledged that Walker identified as a transgender woman. The department did not return a request for comment. 
Condolences for those close to Walker poured on to her Facebook page late this week, after news of Arias’ arrest broke in the local community. Those posting to the page described Walker as joyful.
“My heart hurts because you were such a kind spirit that never bothered anyone,” said one poster, named as Fab Oz, on the page.
“You always kept a smile on your face regardless of how you felt. I pray your soul rest in peace and justice is served.”
Many advocates are now pressuring law makers to address the growing tide of violence against transgender women, and especially the alarming murders of trans women of color.
In its report into hate violence in 2014, the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs warned of an ongoing “crisis of deadly violence against transgender women of color”. It was the fourth year in a row that the monitoring group had highlighted disproportionate levels of severe violence.
Leading blogger and activist Monica Roberts of Transgriot launched a petition recently to call on the Obama administration to investigate the murders of transgender women of colorRoberts notes that most of the victims have been transgender women of color, and many have been under 30. Her “We The People” petition must garner 100,000 signatures by Sept. 10 to get a formal response from the White House.
From the Petition:

Formally Investigate the Transphobic Violence Leading to the Rising Death Toll of Transgender Women of Color in the U.S.

Since January 9, 2015, twelve (12) Transgender women, mostly women of color, have lost their lives due to hate and Transphobia. Eight of these beautiful lives were lost in the first two months of the year. With such a high death toll, something must be done to raise awareness and end the senseless killings of a targeted, vulnerable community.
For Transgender women of color, safety is a real and warranted concern. We are asking the administration to raise awareness and take action to keep this community safe, by conducting a formal investigation of these deaths occurring across the county to the targeted community of Transgender women, particularly women of color.
Please take action to ensure this community does not have to live in fear of losing their lives to hate and violence.
